He briefly mentioned his thoughts about the Coronavirus pandemic. Here is his answer from USAToday.com Interview:
We're in Palm Beach [Florida]. So the good thing is the skies are blue, it's been warm and there's the ocean. The bad part is my wife, Sue, locks me in my office at 7 in the morning and lets me out at 7 at night. I'm reading a lot and writing a lot and messing around with this autobiography. I have a second bed off my office, and I have like eight books piled up, [including] that "Mindf*ck" book, ["Mindf*ck: Cambridge Analytica and the Plot to Break America," by Christopher Wylie]. It's an unbelievable story when you realize how data can be manipulated and has been manipulated in several elections around the world. Actually, Bill Clinton sent that to me. He sends me funny videos every couple of days. So I think he's going a little stir-crazy up in Chappaqua, [his New York home].
What was very interesting about the interview was that James Patterson mentioned that Amazon has not branded the books as essential since books, in general, are considered non-essential. However, cosmetics, liquor stores, gun shops are considered essential. Books are still out of the equation.
